I actually took this when the colors were first changing here. I forgot all about it.

You are posting great stuff, Beth.

DCR 150 (+4) is nearly as magnification as I obtain with Nikon 5T and 6T (+ 4,4).
Its power ends just where DCR 250's vignetting stops.
For small bugs/spiders macros DCR250 is great, being more useable than the +20 reversed 50mm WA., and double power than 150.
But I am sure I ll continue to use the 5T+6T as you ll do with DCR150:
especially your second photo here is an example that more magnification is by no means = to a better photo. Without the whole millet (?) ear, the photo wouldn't have been as effective, although with a more detailed spider ...

Thanks Don!

Narmer, I have acquired a 4t and a 6T at a good price. I wasn't expecting to get the 6T and am thinking I should keep that one in case of upgrade. I adapted my FZ5 to 52mm and can use the 4T with ease. I am looking forward to exploring those when I get them. I will try to search for a good price on a 5T. The spider was taken at night and I think my lighting could have been better to improve the shot. I use a flashlight to focus and then made a small softbox to cover my onboard flash. Probably not the best setup. I do have an external flash now and hope to work with that more.

Thanks for the comments. I am eager to continue improving my macro shots. )

Yup, No.1 is O.K., but No.2 is great-I like the extreme vivid colours (I´m normally not for the subtle things, anyway).

Cheers,
